    Summary

    Imagine, Sylvanas thinks, how merciful my death would've been had a Lich Queen been chosen over a King. Jaina Proudmoore has no need of a Banshee. I would have been slain cleanly, as would all of Azeroth. Efficiently. 

    "A marriage of state," says Jaina. "A mutual surrender for a mutual victory."

    Summary

    The Dark Times are nothing more than ancient history to the humans. Fearsome tales told to all the children of the human kingdoms of Azeroth of satyr and wyvern and trolls and all the wild, fearsome things that once ruled the land. They are almost as fabled and feared as those that tamed the wilds with magic so powerful as to be incomprehensible.

    High Elves, the humans called them. Ruled by an all-powerful queen. Hidden away behind invisible barriers in a land of perpetual warmth and beauty. For the elves had tamed all things. Even nature, itself.

    The betrothal of Jaina Proudmoore, the first human with magic in her veins, to a Lord of the elven royalty was a convenient way for the humans to rid themselves of the perceived threat of a dangerous young woman with a gift none of them understood. It had also solidified a long-standing, tenuous truce between them. And Jaina? Well. Jaina never felt like she belonged, anyway. She has always wanted more.

    Summary

    “Remind me, Schnee, whatever happened to we can’t do this again?” Cinder pants, riding the hand Winter’s slipped past her belt.

    “I can stop,” Winter lies. They’re both fully clothed, courtesy of the damp and dirty cave floor, but it’s not preventing Winter from finding the spots she knows Cinder’s weak to.

    Cinder glares down at her, flames leaking from her eye. “Do that and you’re a dead woman.”

    Summary

    When global pop sensations RWBY embark on their first world tour, Yang makes a pact with herself: Whatever happens, she won’t kiss Blake. Not while they’re still living on top of each other in a double decker bus. Not while they're still on tour, so close to being legends they can taste it.

    (The unhelpful inevitability is that it's made Blake irresistible. Forbidden fruit and all that.)

    Summary

    #1

    Seeing them is utter relief. Pure and absolute solace. Today had been exhausting, the horrors of Salem’s hand in hers still shaking her. The fact that Salem had touched her, had flung her, that Yang had exploded a part of her and watched it recover as if the being was dealing with an annoying itch.

    Salem isn’t as frightening as the stories make her out to be, Yang decides. The only scary thing about her is the knowledge that her mother lost to someone like this.

    -

    or, yang gets thrown into a void and wakes back up at the whale explosion (again and again and aga-)
